Anybody see a problem here?
I dwell in cubicle-land, and at the end of last year I raised half of my work surface, including my keyboard/monitor/mouse, to standing height. Within my small work group we have a variety of approaches, with almost everybody at least partly at standing height. One has a tall chair; another has dual monitors with one at each level.
Most of us are pretty happy standing most of the time, and agree that part time sitting is an important component. I think I may eventually go with a second monitor, since I don't do all that much work that doesn't involve my computer. Some days I don't sit at all.

Might not the recent price increase be an indication that Hastings knows full well that the studios are determined to get more money out of streaming? Megan McArdle recently wrote an interesting piece about this very topic. Faced with choosing among only bad alternatives, it's no surprise that Netflix picked a bad one.
Wasn't that Mutt Lange's count-in on a Def Leppard song?
“The awful thing about life is this: Everyone has his reasons.”
No, but they weigh the same as a duck.
The 135TB figure is what it would be if you used RAID 1
Actually, RAID 1 (mirroring) would cut the usable space in half; RAID 0 (striping) would keep it at 135TB.
"write off" -- I do not think this means what you think it means. It's still an expense, which may or may not be partially offset by a reduction in tax. Partially, unless you're in the mythical 100% tax bracket.
I'd have gone with "Do addicts dream of meth-addled sheep?"
